This unfortunate incident for the cricket world took place in the Dhaka Premier League being played in Bangladesh.
Some bowlers in cricket are arrogant that the wicket must be met on their own appeal. Such arrogance is natural and is rarely seen in cricket. But cricketers connected to the world of cricket, which is considered a gentle game, from the umpire to the analysts are very surprised. Because the mind of such a bowler is always trying to make his appeal come true. Bangladesh’s veteran all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has made a similar move.
This unfortunate incident for the cricket world took place in the Dhaka Premier League being played in Bangladesh. All-rounder Shakib Al Hasan did something that made it an embarrassing incident for cricketers. The bowler usually works all his life to uproot the stumps with his ball. But Shakib kicked and stumped the stumps and also expressed resentment against the umpire.
Shakib did this in a league match played on June 11. The match was played between Mohammedan Sporting and Abahani Limited. Shakib, the former Bangladesh captain and world number one all-rounder, behaved like a bully during the match. Shakib showed his grandfatherhood not once but twice.
Shakib, who is captaining Mohammedan Sporting in the rain-affected match, was the first to commit a grandfatherly act in the fifth over. The batsman appealed to LBW to be out on the final ball of his over. However the umpire gave him a not out. An angry Shakib immediately kicked the stump in front of the umpire and started talking loudly. Still the matter was barely settled where it was over again in the next over.
Stumped a second time
Speaking in the fifth of the sixth over, the umpire signaled to bring covers to the field due to rain. Shakib got angry when he saw it and ran straight to the umpire. Where he uprooted all three stumps and slammed them hard on the pitch. A stump was then lifted and reattached. The DPL 2021 match was being broadcast live on social media. The video of Shakib’s antics has gone viral. At the same time, action has been demanded against him.
Genuinely unbelievable scenes
Shakib Al Hasan completely loses it – not once, but twice!

He apologized for creating a whirlwind of protests
He apologized for his indecent exposure in the wake of the protests. He wrote a post on his Facebook page apologizing and saying that this will not happen again. “I am sorry to express my anger and to disturb the enjoyment of those watching the match at home,” Shakib wrote.
An experienced player like me should not have reacted like this. However sometimes this happens unfortunately in the opposite situation. I apologize to the teams, management, tournament officials and the organizing committee for this human error. Hopefully, I won’t come again in the future.
